*meeting mark grace* :):):):):):):):):):):):)

hi all.....

If U are here for the Nikki Sivils, Jillibean Soup and Bella Blvd. Blog Crawl....CLICK HERE....for your chance to enter in my handmade gift giveaway! :):):):):):):):):) I am DRAWING my WINNER tomorrow morning (March 8th!) :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)


I wanted to share the lo that I have made for the latest Sketchy Thursdays sketch!!! This one was soooooooooooooo FUN! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) And of COURSE being Julie ... I have to share a story with this one....(LOL! DEB....do NOT pay attention to the details in this one....U might DISOWN me!!! LOL!) ... ok...last year during football season, the family and me had gone to Chilli's (YUM!) for dinner...well, Chilli's has a bar area and some people where there to watch the Arizona Cardinals game (no...I'm not a Cardinals fan...if U remember Julie is a 100% NY supporter....lol! ANYWHO.....) sooooooooo NOW....let me explain....Julie DOES like SPORTS to a degree...but ONLY a DEGREE...lol...if ANY NY team players were to walk by me...I would notice them in a heart beat!! lol! With that being said....Brian, Adam, my in-laws and my Brother Steve are all SPORTS fans...HUGE SPORTS FANS...and all the people listed above were at this said dinner at Chilli's...sooooooooooo this guy walks by our table wearing an Arizona Cardinals jersey...and I say to Brian..."Dear, he LOOKS really familiar...does he play for the Cardinals?" (I automatically assumed the Cardinals because of the jersey he was wearing...) and Brian's like, "I don't think so"...sooooo I turn to my brother and my in-laws and ask the SAME question...and again...I get a "NO!"...sooooooooo I'm like, "I'm telling U...he is someone...EVEN I have seen him on TV"...then it hits ME....it is MARK GRACE....former Chicago Cubs and Arizona Diamondbacks Baseball player and the REASON I recognized him...is when I DO happen to sit down with Brian during a baseball game....Mark Grace is now one of their commentator's for the games!! LOL! Soooooooooo there U have it....I recognized a baseball player....and the TRUE sports fanatics in my family DID NOT!! LOL!!!.....sooooooooooo I gave Brian my camera...and him, my brother and Adam approached him and asked him for a picture and an autograph....and he was sooooooooo nice and did! :):):):):):):):):) And here is my LO to remember that day! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
 

  

  

  

  

I used some more of the MOST YUMMIEST {REAL} WOOD PAPER from Creative Imaginations.......loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeee that paper....I need like a million more sheets!!! WOW! :):):):):) And I also used some of the most GORGEOUS papers EVER EVER EVER from 3ndypapir!!! I loveeeeeeeeeeeee Gudrun's designs!!! SOOOOOOOOOOO BEAUTIFUL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) And that "Enjoy every second" tag is a little gift from Diana that she included in one of my  {frequent} purchases from her ETSY STORE! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

I also wanted to share some photos of Miss Brookie and Adam having some fun this weekend...and lol lol lol lol....just to show U how CRAZY Arizona weather is right now....Saturday Brookie was wearing SANDALS as the weather was BEAUTIFUL!!!....and TODAY I have her in a winter coat and GLOVES for it is RAINING here AGAIN....and the temps dropped about 25 degrees from yesterday!! LOL!! Have to LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEE living in the desert! LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Isn't she just the scariest VAMPIRE ever???? LOL! Watch out Cullen family! LOL! :):):):):):):):):)


And I know I have shown pictures before of Miss Brookie's dancing skills....but I'm telling U....she NEEDS nooooooooo music....she will just start dancing ANYTIME....ANYWHERE! LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):)

    And... have to say... if he was wearing that jersey in public, he must WANT to get recognized, right?! You would think?!
